It’s New Years Eve and I’m sure we all have fun things to do… I speak for everyone else since I’ll probably be sat here doing what I always do, catching up on TV, blogging and sorting laundry out! I’ve never been a big fan of NYE celebrations which in the past have invariably meant being stuck in an over-filled pub or club, swaying as the crowd pushes you around and clutching a coat and handbag in one hand and a drink in the other… so no, I like my quiet New Year Eves!
Anyway, whatever you are all doing I wish you a wonderful night and a fantastic 2012.
On with this speedy review of Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Natural Lip Gloss, in this case, which in this case is Zesty Red.
A 95% natural lip gloss that essentially is a protective lip balm. It provides a sheer hint of colour and nice subtle gloss. The effect is nice enough but there is a flaw with the product, or at least with my tube of product.
For the most part I like this product, it feels thick and protective on the lips without feeling gloopy and sticky but it contains these strange little hard beads of what feels like plastic but is probably some kind of wax? The beads are not packing the tube out so you aren’t left with lips covered in grit but they are enough to feel a bit annoying.
It is uncomfortable, but once you’ve managed to get rid of it by whatever means then you’re left with a nice hint of colour and a glossy sheen.
See if you can spot the little bead of whatever it is in the next picture…
I don’t hate the product, I really quite like how it looks and it’s really protecting and softening. It’s just a shame about the little bits in it. It is however a bargain price at £4.49 so if you are looking for something to protect your lips from the elements this winter, that’s nearly 100% natural, is reasonably priced and does a good job but you don’t mind a little annoyance then please check it out.
I’m on the fence about this one, but there’s no denying that after using it my lips feels so soft and conditioned. I’m just not sure I want a product with bits in.
